I'm afraid RN I take part in Tom Scott's Pogues challenge where you try to avoid Fairytale of New York throughout the festive season (which is practically impossible). I have just finished my 3rd successful season, and have extended it into a year-long challenge, it is challenging but very rewarding.

I totally understand the point you're making, ASJ, but...

"I kept them with me... babe...
I kept them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you..."

Everybody...

"And the boys of the NYPD Choir were singing Galway Bay..."

If immensely resistant and ungrateful, this is an almost acceptable stand-in...

A very good song in its own right, a great recording, but still... it is no...

Truly a splendid work of art, eh? a-hard-days-night-george-9 Fun fact: this song was made the year that everyone thought was going to be the last year of human existence. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Any other Björk fans on the forum?

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I attempted a similar thing this year with Wham's Last Christmas, called Whamageddon. Unfortunately I only made it to about the 13th before someone played it in one of my classes. Amusingly, everyone at my work was knocked out of the challenge at our Christmas lunch when it came on in the restaurant.

This because it reminds me of the “to be continued” meme:

Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?
Ringo Starr: He’s great. Especially his poetry.

Lol just some dead and annoying meme where part of that song is played over a still from a movie with the phrase ‘to be continued’ across the screen. The internet needs new ideas mccartney-shrug_01_gif.

Wait , they use that song? I know the meme, and I love the song but I never noticed... hm.

Currently listening to Good Night . Such sweet, sweet, Ringo vocals. I could totally go to sleep to this.

Yes! Why does nobody like Good Night ? I'm not even a Starrfish and I love it.

Edit: also I have done enough derailing for one day so I'm listening to It's All Too Much .
